A scan is performed to search for infected files and malware. Kaspersky Small Office Security features several types of scans that vary in their duration and scope:

  • Full Scan. Scans all areas of the computer. Requires a lot of time.
  • Quick Scan. Scans objects that are loaded when the operating system starts, and scans the system memory and boot files. Does not require much time.
  • Selective Scan. Scans a selected file or folder.
  • Removable Drives Scan. Scans removable drives that are connected to the computer.

After installing Kaspersky Small Office Security, you are advised to run a full scan of the computer.
